This paper focuses on the nematode C. elegans which has a relatively simple structure, and is one of the most analyzed organisms among multicellular ones. We aim to develop a mathematical model of this organism to analyze control mechanisms with respect to locomotion. First, a new motor control model of the C. elegans is proposed, which includes both of the neuronal circuit model and the dynamic model of the body. Then, the effectiveness of the proposed model is verified through a series of computer simulations
